The Winding River
A House Concert by Ann Rothfels
Sunday August 6, 2017
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Host: Heather Whaley
Come travel vicariously down the Albany River in northern Ontario (no mosquitos! no black flies!) as Ann recounts her tale of a thirteen-day canoe trip taken with five other family members, weaving in Bill Staine’s song “River”. This gently adventurous tale will transport you into the wilderness.
Space is limited please reserve in advance by contacting me.
$15.00 per person
Storyteller and fabric artist Ann Rothfels lives in the Eastern Townships in rural Quebec. She has been telling stories for more than twenty years. She has written much of her own material, focusing on personal story. She delights in telling to all ages and makes appropriate adjustments, but her preferred audience is adults as they bring rich life experience to their listening. Known for her gently humourous way of telling, Ann has also been known to bring her listeners to tears. Ann's home has served as a haven for English-speaking tellers performing in the Sherbrooke festival "Les jours sont contés en Estrie" and she keeps a guest book specifically for this purpose. Ann's most recent story "The Ongoing Journey" was written in collaboration with Jan Andrews.
*Rattlings and Rhythms - Heather Whaley & Kim Michele collaborate to create and compose original works interspersed with traditional story and song.
They perform House Concerts both solo and together and may invite other artists to perform with them for certain shows. On occasion, they host House Concerts featuring a special guest storyteller for a unique storytelling program. This is one of them!

Northern Lights … from Norway to Canada
With intricate poetry, music and puppetry, Sarah tells and sings of her Norwegian tradition and Canadian experience. From tales of the mythical huldrefolk and spirits of the water, forests and mountains to stories of those who dwell in our own streets and parks, her performance is both humourous and moving. As a contemporary scald, Sarah has performed for hundreds of festival and community audiences internationally and was the 2016 Artist in Residence for the City of Kitchener. http://sarahgranskou.com
